DeMarcus Ware

Last Sunday, four military members from Fort Carson (near Colorado Springs) got in a car with USAA and left base. In a rare move, the servicemen let up their guard.

Maybe they had a hunch they were in for a unique afternoon. The soldiers were driven to a house, where they met nine-time Pro Bowl linebacker DeMarcus Ware. With the Broncos on a bye, the group watched football and ate turkey with Ware and cornerback Taurean Nixon (who was waived by the Broncos this past Monday).

Not a bad Sunday.

The NFL is currently in its Salute to Service campaign and USAA is the "official military appreciation sponsor of the NFL."
